Obama says he doesn't believe North Korea has nuclear missile
CNN ^ | 04/17/2013 | Jethro Mullen

Posted on 04/17/2013 2:03:29 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd

President Barack Obama has said he doesn't believe North Korea can fit a nuclear warhead on a missile, casting strong doubt on an alarming assessment disclosed last week by the Pentagon's intelligence arm.

And he warned the young North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that weeks of threats against the United States and South Korea had only served to isolate the regime further.

Asked in an NBC News interview whether North Korea could put a nuclear weapon on a ballistic missile, Obama said, "Based on our current intelligence assessments, we do not think that they have that capacity."

'I'm not a psychiatrist'

Asked if he thought Kim Jong Un was unstable, Obama said, "I'm not a psychiatrist, and, I don't know the leader of North Korea."

But he said that "the actions they've taken, the rhetoric they've engaged in has been provocative."

He warned that the situation may not calm down in the short term.

Do you think he'll admit he's wrong if an American city or base, or a Japanese or South Korean city becomes a smoking radioactive hole?

I despise everything the White House occupant stands for as much as anyone here, but there are times when it is best to say nothing because even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

What did you expect him to say about NK missiles? Perhaps an “I don't know for certain” would have been better but we do have missile defense ships in the area so that is the real answer to what he thinks, even if it is just a better safe than sorry.

As far as comments on Kim are concerned, again, what did you expect him to say?

BHO is inept, incompetent, anti-American, lazy and malevolent but ridiculing EVERYTHING he says doesn't make the people who do that look very rational either.

Everyone’s focused on the words “warhead” and “missile”, but there are other means of delivery.

Obama said, "Based on our current intelligence assessments, we do not think that they have that capacity."

FRACKING LIAR!

His OWN PEOPLE said so!

Official statements from the White House and the Pentagon reported that “North Korea probably has nuclear weapons that can be mounted on ballistic missiles.”

The Antichrist can look you in the eye, smile, and lie!

******

1. No, you’re not a psychiatrist, but you need to see one.
2. YOU (unfortunately) are the President of US and you should know all about Lil Kim. Ignorant lazy moron.
3. Who told you they don’t have nukes, Dennis Rodman?

Dennis: Hey man, Kim ain’t gots no nukes.
Obama: You sure man? Okay, talk at you later bro.
